Happy belated Stranger Things Day! November 6th marked the national holiday in honor of the hit series. And to celebrate the annual festivities, Netflix dropped brand new teasers for the show's upcoming season four. Here are all of the details.
Weren't aware that November 6th is Stranger Things Day? If that's the case, you've certainly got some serious binging to do. The date was chosen by fans as the series' unofficial holiday because it marks the day in 1983 that - spoiler alert - Will Byers first disappeared into the Upside-Down dimension. And this year's celebrations brought us a whole day of other-worldly events and not one but two new teasers.
The latest trailer revealed that Stranger Things 4 will be taking us to California, where Eleven and the Byers fam have moved. "Dear Mike," Eleven, played Millie Bobby Brown, writes to her long-distance boyf. "Today is day 185. I think I have finally adapted. I even like school now. I have made lots of friends." But as Cali's newest resident describes her time in the Golden State, footage of her life shows a different reality.
The trailer shows Eleven getting bullied by classmates and ignored by peers in the hallway. But one thing she is telling the truth about? Her excitement about seeing Mike during the upcoming spring break - which we're sure will be a vacation to remember. Netflix also dropped the names of this season's episodes, ranging from The Hellfire Club to The Nina Project and The Massacre at Hawkins Lab. Fans immediately started speculating at what the episode titles could be hinting at. But sadly, we all still have a while to go before it hits our screens.
The upcoming season is slated to premiere in the summer of 2022. And while that's way too many months away, we're looking at the cup half full: the show's creators confirmed that it won't be the final season. "Season four won't be the end," Ross Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter. "We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story."
Well, at least having to wait until the summer gives us plenty of time to binge-watch Stranger Things... for the millionth time.
